Paul brown petty was a good ol man
Felt a little better when you shook his hand 
Let me tell you little bout and you'll understand 
Why Paul brown petty was a good ol man

He grew up in the depression  and he fought in the war
He never talked to much about the other shore
But he was real good lookin in his uniform
Officer petty in '44

And you might say
Hey what's so great
Sounds like a simple man 
He wasn't rich or famous
But to me he sure was grand

He married a girl from down the street
Built her a house down by a creek
One girl, two boys, five mouths to feed
Paul brown petty built a family

He opened a shop down on the square
He'd sit you on up in his barbers chair
Get a summertime buzz or a real close shave
Get ya all cleaned up, send you on your way

And you might say 
Hey what's so great 
Sounds like a simple man 
He wasn't rich or famous 
But to me he sure was grand

He was a Cumberland Presbyterian
He went up to meet his maker in '91
Sometimes when I talk about him I get sad
You see Paul brown petty was my grandad

His courage runs down in my blood
His kindness in his eyes 
If you can see a man in me 
He's the reason why

Paul brown petty was a good ol man
Felt a little better when he shook your hand
And if you could've known him you'd understand
Why Paul brown petty was a good ol man
